Dont be fooled by a knock off
Originally got a knock off mini siphon and it was no where near air tight. So much air was let in. But with this one racking goes without a hitch. So learn from my mistake spend the extra five bucks to get this one from NB.

This thing worked great. I do one gallon batches and the mini siphon was spot-on perfect for the job.

Good concept, but extremely hard to actuate
I could not get this siphon to work properly. At first, I tried just pumping it back and forth with no tubes attached. I wound up blowing the end off of it on the way back down because I had to use a lot of strength to get it unstuck. When it finally gave in to the force I was applying, the air couldn't escape quickly enough from the tube so it shot the end of the siphon straight off the tube. I reassembled it (it had only torn off the very last thread, thank God) and tried again after soaking it in water. Same result: the rubber gasket had such a tight seal that I couldn't get it to budge back down the tube. After working it back and forth for a while it finally loosened up.

The second (and worse) problem I had was that the plastic tube and rubber tubing did not mate together exactly. There was enough play between the two that I wound up taping the end of the tubing to the pipe to create a seal. I had to do this on the filler wand as well. Having any air enter the system completely ruins the siphon and introduces more oxygen to the mix.

Hopefully my first batch turns out OK with all of the accidental oxidation... I'm going to look for better siphons on the market or just do it the old fashioned mouth-suck way next time. The best siphon I had with this system was a glorified trickle. It took me 30 minutes to bottle 9 bottles.

I will say that the end of the siphon has a nice standoff distance in order to keep the opening away from the trub as much as possible.

Spend some extra dough and get a better siphon!

Junk
Came with the 1 gallon small batch kit. Tried to use this with the bottle filler attachment to fill bottles, and the things simply would not siphon. I was filling at ground level with the jug sitting on the counter. I ended up having someone constantly pump this thing, introducing all kinds of air into the beer. I proceeded to cap off all the bottles. I feel like it's been ruined, but we'll see how it turns out. I then tested it out with just water and tubing, no bottle filler valve, and it would not siphon. It seems like everything has a tight seal, I'm don't see any obvious reason why it wouldn't work, but that doesn't change the fact that it doesn't. Gravity and suction are proven technologies, the fault lies somewhere in this cheap piece of plastic. The whole process has me looking into conical fermenters with the trub dumps and bottle filler attachments. Cutting the racking cane/siphon out of the mix entirely appeals to me.

Response from Northern Brewer
Sorry for the trouble with your Mini Siphon. It sounds like it may be somehow defective and we can certainly get you a replacement right away. I have found in a pinch that removing the middle clear plastic tube works awesome as a racking cane. I will be reaching out via email about a replacement.

Waste of money
The one I got is a piece of crap. The outside tube, that the plunger is suppose to travel up and down in, is so out-of-round in places that sliding the plunger smoothly is impossible to do. There are three places that the plunger binds in the tube. Trying to get it primed is nearly impossible. All the dead yeast in the bottom of the bucket ends up being all stirred up and beer all over the counter and floor.

Unfortunately it does not fit my 1 gallon jugs
I bought this so I could siphon from the standard glass jugs used in typical 1 gallon batches. It says it fits standard 1 gallon jugs.
Doesn't fit any of mine.

Good siphon tube needs minor changes
Not quite as smooth operating as the bigger model, tube at discharge end needs to be chamfered to receive the flexible tubing better, still recommend it

Not Worth It
I have not had much success with this siphon. This came with the small batch kit, and it’s about the only option to use with the 1 gal jug. I have to pump and pump to get it flowing, and then it’s only just a trickle when it does flow. The multiple pumps always disturbs the trub in the bottom of the kettle/fermenter and gets into the wort/beer. I would not recommend getting this if you don’t have to, but again don’t a choice with 1 gal kits. I will be upgrading to 5 gal batches soon and will get all siphon less equipment when I do.

Does it work with a bottle filler? I had issues with starting and stopping the siphon.

BEST ANSWER: Feel free to reach out to customer service for some tips!
How do you reassemble the bottom components? I unscrewed the bottom, to clean after first use, without realizing there were like 3 other pieces inside. I have tried to reassemble but the siphon won't work now. A video would be great!

BEST ANSWER: Matt,

Thanks for your question. I have attached some photos showing how it goes together. The first photo shows all the pieces. The second photo shows the two inner most pieces and how they fit together, putting the U shaped piece in the notches of the donut looking ring. The third picture shows how they fit into the bottom piece with the hole through it. The fourth photo shows how that whole assembly screws onto the siphon body. The last photo shows everything fully assembled. If you have any further question I'm only an email or phone call away.

Cheers!

What is the diameter of the bottom end? In other words, what is the smallest mouth jug it can fit into?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The opening of the container would need to be about 1 1/16th inch in diameter.
So... what is the over measurements?
